Hundreds of England and Russia fans fight running battles in Marseille Euro 2016 game.
A gang of well organised Russian fans is suspected to have clashed with England fans, hours ahead of the team’s match against Russia. Images from the waterfront in the city, show French police firing tear gas cans at massing groups of fans.
Video footage showed fighting on a set of steps in the city, that led to one man smashing a chair over another’s head, and bottles being thrown. It was not clear if England fans were involved in that incident. Heavily armoured officers, wearing face guards and carrying plastic shields, were seen lining up to prepare for violence.
